Mobile Ad hoc networks in the Global system of Interconnected Computer Networks

Alamgir Safi, Inam Ullah Khan, Muhammad Abul Hassan, Muhammad Asghar


Computers capable of attaching to the Internet from many places are likely to grow in popularity until they dominate the population of the Internet. Consequently, protocol research has shifted into high gear to develop appropriate network protocols for supporting mobility. This introductory article attempts to outline some of the many promising and interesting research directions. The papers in this special issue indicate the diversity of viewpoints within the research community, and it is part of the purpose of this introduction to frame their place within the overall research area.
